LGBT Ireland welcomes the published report into the lived experiences of LGBTI+ people living in International Protection accommodation. This report will support positive changes and the implementation of measures to ensure members of the LGBTI+ community in the asylum process are appropriately supported.
The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth commissioned this report to develop recommendations in order to improve the support of international protection applicants who are members of the LGBTI+ community. The Department commissioned LGBT Ireland to undertake this report. The project was managed by Collette O’Regan and Mariem Ben Chattouh of LGBT Ireland and the research team consists of Dr Chris Noone, Dr Noemi Magugliani and Rory Sugrue.
